For those of us who struggle with back pain, sitting can sometimes lessen the pain and allow us to continue on with our lives. There are times, however,  when it's inconvenient to sit for various reasons.

A Switzerland start-up called Noonee is developing 'The Chairless Chair,' an applicance worn on the legs that does not interrupt walking but can be deployed to offer the support of a chair. 'The Chairless Chair' will also have many other applications and benefits; imagine using public transportation and always missing a chance to sit down. 'The Chairless Chair' would allow you to bring your own seating wherever you go.
